Coating on sinker nails?


I used 12d sinkers on a small project over the last couple of days ('cause that's what I had on hand...), and by the time I'd driven a few dozen nails I noticed the yellow-ish coating on the nails was coming off onto my hands. That just made me curious, prompting me to ask: what's the coating material, and is it in any way hazardous?

Coating on sinker nails?


The coating should be cement. It melts as the nail is driven, then glues it in place.
